Halfspace, a Copenhagen based data analytics and machine learning company helping SMEs and large corporations drive business decisions- and operations, using large-scale data analysis, models and algorithms to better forecast and predict.

From shipping and transportation to pharma, retail and sports analysis, we help companies transform data to actionable insights and bring traditional business intelligence (BI) to a new level, helping our clients make better decisions.

Having spun out of a successful quantitative research team of mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, research analysts and tech entrepreneurs, Halfspace.io was founded with a vision to use math, stats and coding to solve challenging problems for SMEs and large corporations.

Meet the team.

We prove to clients that we can actually help them optimize their business through powerful predictions and forecasts.
